Linatex is a company that manufactures plastic components. It produces several different products in small batches. For this reason, it required an affordable cobot quick and easy to reprogram. The UR5 turned out to be the perfect solution for their requirements.
UR5 is a 6-axis table-top collaborative robot. It provides 0.1mm repeatability being capable of performing repetitive and complex tasks with extreme precision over time. With a sturdy structure and safety sensors, it is ideal for collaborative works being able to lift products of up to 5 kg.
The UR5 is a multi-tasking, universal robot. Easy-to-program and redeploy, it provides you with extreme flexibility. You can comfortably implement it in different production steps and quickly employ it in new tasks in case of need.
The robot is widely used to perform different operations, including:
Ideal to automate repetitive and dull activities, the UR5 is an efficient tool for pick-and-place tasks, especially for small-volume production. Engineered with a computer vision system, it is capable of recognizing different parts, pick and sort them.
It can even pick some delicious strawberries for you.
The cobot can be an effective aid when handling injection molds. Indeed, this might be a dangerous operation for human workers. The UR5 reduces the risk of injuries while granting extreme efficiency and speed. Also, it works autonomously without the need for human supervision. It can even work while your employees are at home. It is adopted in plastic and polymer production.
Working beside industrial machines might also be dangerous. Even in this case, the UR5 can replace employees for machine tending. Fast and accurate, it is capable of effectively complete the job autonomously.
Ideal for loading and unloading operations, the cobot can lift medium-weight products freeing operators from repetitive yet hard tasks.
A cobot is capable of repeating the same movements for hours granting high repeatability and consistent results over time. Equipped with a built-in vision camera, it can perform non-destructive testing and 3D measurements for quality inspection, lab analysis, and testing.
The infinite rotation of the end joint allows assembling and screwing parts together.
Force control, flexibility, repeatability and accuracy enable consistent operation while delivering uniform product quality. They allow performing various tasks, including polishing buffing, sanding, gluing, dispensing and welding.
The UR5 features a working radius of up to 850mm. It can perform any task within its reach, letting you employ your workers in more important activities.
You can program and operate the robotic arm via a control box with a teach pendant. It supports both 3D visualization and manual teaching. Move the arm manually or through the on-screen arrow keys to teach it the path to follow.
